Study Guides: Mathematics in Science

book cover

These on-line Study Guides have been developed by Graham Currell in association with:
Royal Society of Chemistry, 'Discover Maths for Chemists' website,
University of the West of England,
"Essential Mathematics and Statistic for Science", 2nd Edition,
Graham Currell and Antony Dowman, Wiley-Blackwell, 2009

These 'skills focus' study guides provide video introductions or study references with a sequence of self assessments, with video feedback, to take you through the main individual calculation steps. The self-assessment questions allow you to find where you may need some tutorial help, and the video feedback clips may act as a sufficient 'tutorial' in themselves. If futher help is required, the guides provide links to tutorial material from a range of other sources.

Please link to individual study guides via the menu options.
